We are Hiking for the Homeless on November 2 at Edwin Warner Park. Join the Nashville Hiking Meetup team for the 9th Annual Hike for the Homeless benefiting Safe Haven Family Shelter. This hike is a Nashville favorite for its heavy dose of outdoor time, friends, family, food and fun. The event includes hiking on two paved trails (2.2 and 3.1 miles), a complimentary lunch, a climbing wall, live music and children's activities. The hike will take place at Edwin Warner Park picnic shelters 9 and 11 on Saturday, November 2, 2013. Registration begins at 9 a.m., with hikers hitting the trail at 10 am. There is no entry fee for the Hike, but they are encouraging each team to raise money. Each person who donates at least $25 will get a Hike for the Homeless t-shirt. If you cannot join us for the Hike on November 2, you can still be there in spirit by making a donation to support our team. Be sure to encourage your coworkers, friends and family to sign up for our team and/or make a donation to support our team. Here is the Nashville Hiking Meetup Team link to sign up and/or to make a donation: http://hike4homeless.kintera.org/NashvilleHikingMeetup
Dogs are very welcomed. They have dog bandanas while supplies last!
Lisa Cloyd has been gracious enough to be our volunteer point person. Everyone check in at registration and then meet Lisa by the Hike for the Homeless banner which is near the hike start line. She'll be wearing her olive green NHM ball cap!
